    Just wanted to point out you have to do this in 1 go since the last save. Failing and restarting doesn't get you the cheevo anymore. The last checkpoint is in the last (5th floor) hallway and there's only a few enemies between you and the end of this mission. Hope it helps someone and clears confusion about restarting after failing, then suceeding and not getting the achievement :)

    Also you must "flee" after you hold off the Squashtrich.

    I didn't have the Rock Band drums or a rapid controller and the lighter/pen gliding tip didn't work for me either so I hold the controller slightly left and just mashed my fingers off, it's a frustrating achievement if you don't have any extra stuff, like the drums, to do this. Just mash X like your life depends on it and you will unlock it after good determination :) It popped for me on my 12th try.

    I'll include a little video, not purely about this achievement but it will show you about the Squashtrich and what to do and how it goes if it's your first playtrough so you know what happens.

    TitleInLargeThe most fucking evil achievement in this game! I literally buggered up my elbow ligament from tensing so much to mash the X button! angry I did it, but man was this an unrealistic Q.T.E achievement.

    Not wanting to lug out my RB drums, I searched for a different method to accomplish this. Someone on another achievement mentioned they used a rounded Bic lighter to rapidly run over the button, as you're essentially getting a double-hit each pass when it touches each side. That didn't quite work for me here, as the X button is too close to the start button to have enough room.

    An ink pen, however, is perfect. Hold it by the cap and rapidly run the other side of it back and forth over the X button. You should make it on your first try with room to spare.

    I used the rounded corner of a disposable Lighter, much like what you described, and it worked great. I had tried drums, didn't work. I tried all kinds of stuff, then tried a Lighter and it worked first time! +1 for making me think of using a lighter laugh

    On a side note, this achievement is a complete bitch without any additional aids... trying to button bash fast enough without any external assistance was ridiculously hard!

    This scene can be kinda tricky as it pops up quickly. You must not let Nene squash Shu at all. After you button mash, some battle command prompts will come up, simply "Flee" when they come up to get the achievement.
